A Tuscaloosa man was arrested today and is facing charges related to child pornography.

The West Alabama Human Trafficking Task Force says 33-year-old Michael Wilson is charged with two counts of disseminating obscene material depicting persons younger than 17 after investigators searched his home this morning.

Members of the task force, the Tuscaloosa Police Department, University of Alabama Police Department, the State of Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Division and TPD’s Cyber Crimes Division contributed to the investigation.

“Collaboration between these agencies is essential in cases like this,” said Task Force Commander Capt. Phil Simpson. “Sharing resources helps us to quickly build strong cases against those who support the exploitation and victimization of children.”

Wilson was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail with a $60,000 bond.

This is an ongoing investigation, with additional charges expected, Simpson said.
